May 18-22 is Unique Week throughout the WCS District. Unique Week celebrates that all students are worthy of respect and acceptance of their unique traits and talents. We kicked off Unique Week on Friday with a fun assembly with games and this touching video. We challenged all students to replace put-downs with compliments! Acceptance and acknowledgement of each other’s unique characteristics will improve the outcome for everyone!

Spirit Wear this Week to Support Unique Week: 
5/18 Monday: Sunglasses- See the World Differently 
5/19 Tuesday: Superhero- We all have Unique Strengths!
